the obama administration for selectively choosing which cuts would make us all feel the most pain. take a listen to kansas senator jerry moran earlier today. >> it seems as if politics is playing a significant role in the determining what actions the faa are taking, and every indication that i have from conversations with my colleagues is it emanates from the white house. >> all right. here to talk about what i call the phony crisis and the obama democrats' attempt to raise $1.2 trillion in taxes is texas republican congressman, vice chair of the joint economic committee, my friend brady. and democratic strategist steve mcmann and townhall.com's guy benson here with me. mr. kevin brady, welcome. i know you blasted the irs for their fur lows. but i want to just put up -- i don't know if you can see this, probably not. i'm going to read the numbers. we're going to show you that the faa has had a massive -- that's the blue line. they've gone from about $2 billion all the way up to over $5 billion in their operating budget since 2008. they're off the pink but still very high. and at the sam
on christians." nina, great to have you back on the show. >> great to be back. >> wendy: what should the obama administration do about this increased attack and the increased persecution of christians under the muslim brotherhood. >> christians in egypt are in terrible assault. this is the seat of their coptic pope, and if that can be breached, if there can be an all-out assault with grenades and firebombs and tear gas against christians during a funeral, and the funeral was for other christians who had been murdered in an attack against their village, then really no christian is safe. it is a crime to be christian in egypt, in effect. so we have to, as the largest donor to egypt -- we're extremely generous as a country to egypt, both in our direct aid to the military, the economic aid, and to their farm loans, and we need to draw a red line and say these christians must be protected and their murderers must be brought to trial and justice must be served. >> wendy: we saw the incredible story of the two women from iran. and we know others, including pastor saeed abedini, are still jailed in ir
with a promise. the obama administration is committed to preserving and improving the jewish state's military edge in the region, part of that includes the much talked about iron dome missile defense system. kevin conley reports. >> it is an israel designed american funded break through n military technology. all possibly a kind of optical illusion. iron dome is a missile defense system credited by israel with destroying nearly 0% of the rockets fired at it during the last conflict with palestinians in gaza. not everyone is convinced. because the incoming rockets are invisible to the naked eye a handful of skeptics say we might be witnessing the missiles themselves self drurkting without hitting anything. >> i don't know exactly what happened. would like to have an answer. how me your infrared videos. >> israel's enemies get the importance of the system. this internet video claiming responsibility for the recent attack ended with a taunting message that iron dome did not stop it. the truth is not many are listening to those voices of doubt. take these iron dome in the south of the country. m
. what happened if h si inside the obama administration about whether to to the fact he was working for the cia and how to get them out. what happened was initially the obama administration didn't have the pakistanis he was working for the cia. they said he was diplomat. president obama said he's a diplomat. it was only after weeks and weeks as the situation spiraled out of control increasingly, where one of the wives swallowed rat poison because she became a new martyr and was convinced raymond davis to be treated well. ultimately the obama administration went to the pakistani government and sabrina davis is with the cia. there's got to amount of the country. in march of 2011, he was ultimately released from prison after what was blood money was paid, where the guns that the families were paid over $2 million in a massive swipe away his charges and he was released to the united states and sent to an. the entire episode was a microcosm of how fraught u.s. tech any relations have become. >> what kind of work was he doing for the cia impact of and? >> he was doing a number of differen
. so the tension is going to focus on the obama administration and following this. we saw during the presidential election campaign mitt romney continually criticized the president being soft on terrorism inspect.. >> and the benghazi incident where it seemed they -- responding to the threat sfp. >> the obama administration was reluctant to use the word terrorism and link it with al qaeda. we saw that a little bit last week, a day before the word "terrorist" was used. this is the line the republicans will use against the president, that he's soft on terror. we're already seeing senior republicans accusing the fbi of dropping the ball on this one, senator lindsay graham and senior members of the house. >> are they justified? is there any way of knowing how many threats like this come into the u.s. on a daily, even hourly basis, and whether in the grand scheme of thing this one ought to have raised the flags? >> i'm not privy to the particular piece of intelligence on this. i imagine obviously they would have thousands of these and things on an annual basis. lindsey graham has said
there is no right to legal council when you are being questioned for national security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> cane see mike tobin again? >> 10 seconds later the second explosion goes off according to the fbi at the location where he dropped his -- please don't do that, where he dropped his knapsack. shepherd? >> the only bright spot in this whole thing. ambassador, is it a mistake not to label him a combatant? can we still an interrogate him? >> there is a choice that has to be made here whether you treat these criminals as through the criminal justice system or you treat them as enemy combatants. it is because they are too fundamentally -- two fund mentally different things at work. if you think there is just a jumped up case of bank robbery it is for the criminal justice system. if you think it is part of an on going war against the united states it is completely different paradigm. and trying to mix the two together which many do hurts us both in criminal law enforcement and in the w
. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound to the throat but he is responding to some questions to a team the federal investigators in writing. any indication as to what he is saying or maybe perhaps just what they are trying to get out of him at
. that's already the case in about half the states. the state of missouri and the obama administration wanted a blanket rule allowing the blood tests without a warrant. thousands of people in southwestern pakistan were homeless today-- 24 hours after a powerful earthquake rocked neighboring iran. at least 700 homes in the mashkel area of baluchistan province were reduced to rubble. some 35 pakistanis were killed in the quake, and another 150 were injured. the pakistani army said it deployed several hundred soldiers to the quake zone to bring much-needed humanitarian relief. in the middle east, islamist militants fired at least two rockets from egypt's sinai peninsula into southern israel, adding to growing security concerns there. they targeted the resort town of eilat. but police officials said there were no casualties. meanwhile, palestinians in the west bank and gaza marked prisoner day, urging israel to release palestinian detainees. they waved flags and carried pictures of some of the 4,500 palestinians in custody. new zealand became the 13th country in the world today -- and the
had stagnant growth frankly throughout most of the obama administration and the leadership in the last five years. we need do better. >> host: why is it okay to spent billions of year on corporate entitlement who don't pay taxes. we pay for our entitlements wall street does not. >> guest: it's not okay. , i mean, frankly, we need to bring it in and change our tax code in a way that lowers rates for everybody and eliminate the big corporation. i do recognize, i think the caller -- the e-mail is correct. folks have paid in to social security and medicare deserve to receive those benefits. the problem is something is not done, then the programs over time have the risk of going away. >> host: on twitter wouldn't social security and medicare be in a better shape if wages were higher? >> guest: wouldn't social security and medicare be in better shape if wages were higher? yeah. that's right. one of the challenges we face is how do you get the growing economy going forward and that is up with of our big debate for the summer. republicans believe that we need modify our tax code and reduce rat
years. by and large, the bush administration and the obama administration should be applauded for the efforts. all the men and women who work throughout our law enforcement agencies, the fbi, cia, military, to try to keep us safe. but when these tragedies occur, we cannot help but be heartbroken and we need to see what more needs to be done. host: let's move on to the budget. the front page of the washington post has its headline -- where did you come down on a proposal from the president, the chained cpi, as well as higher medicare premiums and reduced benefits for wealthier seniors? guest: we have to start with the premise cannot keep spending money we don't have. we have a moral obligation to not rob the next generation of their opportunity to live the american dream. at the same time, we have seniors who have paid into this program, folks that are near retirement and those years away from retirement to have paid into social security and medicare with the understanding there will have the security of those programs being strong. actuaries of either party will tell you the n
is available to answer those questions. on the issue of the obama administration. candidate obama promised to close guantanamo and reject torture without exception or eequivocation. he also criticized previous administrations for executive seek recessy, including repeated invocation of the state's secret privilege to get civil lawsuits thrown out of court and he promised to lead a new era of openness. the administration has full fit filled some of those promises and conspicuously failed to fulfill others. in some cases because congress has blocked them, but in other cases for reasons of their own. as asa mentioned, the secrecy around torture of detainees cannot be justified to be continued to keep secret. the c.i.a. has approved its former employees publication of detailed accounts of individual interrogation. ongoing classification of this only makes its rep -- repetition more likely. as far as redaxes needed to honor specific -- as far as redactions needed to on more -- honor specific agreements, it has been determined to be made as available as possible. in addition to prohibiting all a
of the first things that the obama administration could, should, and won't do is have a treasury department, an executive agency designate china currency manipulator so the cues can start taking countermeasures against it. there was a bill to crack down on bill manipulation passed in the house and senate in separate sessions so was it was not law. that was one of the immediate things people ask, what could one do, but the larger issue is the u.s. similarly has to get wise to the fact that free trade is a theoretical construct built on sand, and it's consequences, which are observable, are bad and they are inexitble. if anyone has questions, i'll take them now. >> i got a question. >> one moment, please. we'll bring the. i should say, author and senior economist, [inaudible] >> sorry, i think now -- yes, sorry, and we'd like to remind our viewing audience this is a program at the commonwealth club of california, why free trade doesn't work. so your questions are recorded anded in the telecast, use the microphone that i'll now -- >> thank you, a spirited talk. i have a question from a nonecon
-alcohol levels i should say. the obama administration also was hoping the supreme court would endorse a blanket rule, that would have allowed the tests without any kind of a warrant. we'll keep you updated. jenna: breaking information on the boston bombing investigation. what the fbi releasing this photo showing the mangled remains of the alleged pressure cooker lid used in the bomb. apparently it can be packed with nails and ball bearings in an effort to inflict the most damage on its victims. when all pressure builds up it can force out some of these items at some 200 miles per hour. joining us now, kevin berry, retired detective first grade bomb squad and former nypd. and he worked on the first world trade center bombing and the nine 11 attacks. we have seen the video of these parts and. what is the biggest tell for you? what gives you the most information? >> i think the pressure cooker is going to be the item that is going to break the case. if it was purchased recently they will be able to track that. not too many people today have pressure cookers. it is something that was used by our pa

at an administration that has two former prime ministers, and three former party presidents. you must envy us because you can't do anything like that and present your system. bill clinton vice president of obama, very difficult imagining. now i will start off by touching upon our alliance. my view is that something is wrong when you say that the u.s. is always on the giving end and japan always on the receiving end. about provision of the security and our alliance. the japanese stand tall as an equal and responsible ally to the u.s. the japanese must work hard as a guardian of international common goods, peace, prosperity, and democracy. in fact, my grandfather's grandfather as a aspirations,y september 1951 in san francisco, the security agreement. he hoped that one day japan could work with the u.s. as an equal partner to sustain the liberal international order. 62 years later, that aspiration still holds. it is my belief that japan has its noble responsibility to enhance peace, hpiss and democracy in the world. that's why, ladies and gentlemen, japan must begin its economic power. that's why we ar
